WKT: Continents

I am probably just stupid, but I could not for the live of me find well-known text representations of the world's continents. I finally did it myself. Very, VERY coarse, mind you using the OpenLayers WKT Example and Wikipedia as a reference. This works for my purposes. Feel free to tell me were I can find better more suitable data! Here are my results:

Asia
